I just realized I totally blanked and forgot last night was the St. Louis Brews Meeting. I’m really disappointed I missed it. Well anyway, a new month is upon and it’s time for another Round-Up.Plenty of stuff to report today, so let’s get it going.

  • In case I haven’t said it enough, Schlafly is releasing their 2007 Barrel Aged Imperial Stout and Barley Wine today. You may find it in your local stores, but if you want to be safe, buy it at the Tap Room or Bottleworks.

The upcoming beer events section is a bit sparse. So if you have an event you want to promote, feel free to contact me and I’ll make sure it makes it onto the events calendar. Have a good weekend and make sure to either teach someone or learn how to homebrew!
